An O-Fest from Poland? You know, that's what I love about beer... it never fails to surprise me.

A - This is a dark, but perfectly clear, orange-bronze and is capped with a fluffy two finger head that rose up with a nitro-like cascade effect. Thick sheets of really solid lace slide down the glass and leave some crust behind. Nice!

S - Carrot cake and caramel malt with a hint of cinnamon and spice. In fact, this reminds me of those carrot cake flavored and white hard icing-topped ding-dong things that you can get in bowling alley vending machines.

T - Wow! This is a surprisingly forceful and very sweet flavor attack! This is like a dark over-ripe fruit laden Baltic Porter mixed with the spice cake notes of an "Imperial Oktoberfest" if such a thing exists. This tastes and feels much more boozy than it's meager 5.6%, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, that big body and dense sweetness works to this one's favor. Seriously, this is complex, sweet, uber-malty, and tasty as hell.

M - Full bodied, dextrin-y, solid, dense, massive, and muscular. This is one helluva beer. Finishes neutral with a "spice-cake drenched in molasses" note lingering after the swallow.

D - Just this morning I was brewing up a batch of pale ale homebrew, and I happened to sample the malt extract raw after I got all I could out of the can, and this tastes a lot like that raw malty sweet and bran-y flavor. I opened this brew expecting some sort of Polish version of a Euro-Lager and instead I was amazed to be treated to one of the best Oktoberfests I've ever had, and that's saying a lot since I've had quite a few and it's one of my favorite styles! An outstanding O-Fest ... from Poland! Who would've thunk?

3.14/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pale transparent orange color. Half a finger of head on the pour which dissipated quickly and was lightly present on the top of the brew while drinking. Mild to average active carbonation while drinking.

Smell: light buttery yeast on the front. Grainy malt backbone. Some toasted oats round out the aroma. Very light and subtle overall.

Taste: The front is pretty watery, some light malt mixes with some bready yeast. The body picks up with some grain character with oats and very subtle hop tones. The finish is semi sweet butter and prairie grass.

Mouthfeel: I could use some more crisp hop and malt tones. Front is definitely watery and fails to pull the drinker in. Carbonation is okay.

Overall: Unimpressive overall but I would recommend it for a macro drinker looking for something different within that similar price range. This brew just need more character in all areas. Good for a warm day barbeque though.

poured a dark gold color. head dissipates quickly. no carbonation visible. corn and malt aroma. the interesting thing about this beer is that I get a flavor reminiscent of sweet tea with lemon. my friends concurred. there is the slightest hint of skunk flavor, but primarily i get flavors of tea and lemon. hit me completely off guard.
